Love Your Mom? WalMart Doesn't

Love Mom, Not WalMart

Found this campaign over on my pal, Captain Normal, and am more than happy to sign the pledge. The concept is to highlight WalMart's business practices in regards to women in particular because, really, WalMart doesn't like women very much, at least not enough to treat them equally to men. And really, what does it say about a gift you give your mother for Mother's Day (May 8th for those that aren't sure) when you're helping to propel a company that doesn't respect women's rights?

Want to join the growing group of people who refuse to support a company that has a long history of paying women less and promoting them to management positions ALOT slower than their male counterparts. Join me in saying we love our mothers (and sisters and daughters and girlfriends) and will not give our money to a corporation that treats them like second class citizens.

[Update: So where to shop for Mom online? How about a site that donates part of its profits to helping cure Breast Cancer? I've been a big fan of the Gear That Gives shops from the Breast Cancer Site. Not only do they have some really cool items, they benefit all women with their services and that's a really nice meta-gift for the important women in your life.]
